There will be designated area of the Maris Farms parking lot with 10-12 tent and 4-5 RV spots available. No hook ups are available, so any power will need to be provided by the vendor. Only two small fires allowed (one for the RV area and one for the tent space area) and approval for these must be made by either a Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. or Maris Farms representative. Cost is $15/night for tent space and $20/night for RV space.
Any Non-Profit organization in Pierce County (if accepted) has priority to obtaining a booth over other non-profit’s from other counties and commercial concerns/individuals operating for profit. The area where booths are located will accommodate approximately 30 booths. All applicants are pre-juried to determine suitability. It could take up to 20 days from time of application submittal for application to receive word of approval/rejection.
No signs, partitions, apparatus, shelving, etc. may extend more than 8 feet above the floor along the rear of an exhibit. The aisles and passageways remain under the control of the management, and no signs, decorations, banners, advertising matter or exhibits will be permitted in those areas except with written permission and as approved by Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. and/or Maris Farms. This is a springtime flower and baby animal event and all decorations/costumes are encouraged to reflect this theme. Decorations/costumes are still voluntary in nature, but may become mandatory in the future. Every effort should be made to decorate to uphold the theme of the event.
All vendors and their personnel must remain within the confines of their own spaces and no vendor will be permitted to erect signs or display products obstructing the view, occasion, injury, or disadvantageously affect the display of other exhibitors. All demonstrations and distribution of circular and promotional material must be confined to the limits of the vendors booth. Exhibits which include the operation of musical equipment, radios, sound motion picture equipment, public address systems or any noise making machines must be operated so that the noise resulting from there will not annoy or disturb adjacent exhibitors and their patrons, and must be approved by the management.
Vendors are required to have their exhibit, the area in front of and behind neat and orderly at all times.
Only vendors who have made proper application to Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. will be allowed in the show area. Absolutely no space may be given to another vendor without acceptance by Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T.
Supplies may only be brought to the booths prior to show opening each day. Parking is very restricted in the area and you will only be allowed to stop, un-load and then depart during non-open-to-the-public hours.
No written materials other than Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. activity bulletins are permitted in the booths without prior approval from Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. and/or Maris Farms representatives. Material desired to be handed out, must be submitted with vendor contract for approval.
The management reserves the right to restrict or remove exhibits, without refund, that have been falsely entered, or are deemed by the management unsuitable or objectionable. This restriction applies to, but is not limited to, noise, PA systems, persons, animals, birds, things, conduct, printed matter or anything of a character that might be objectionable to the show, or the management. Vendor shall not engage in any raffle, chance drawing, lottery or other game of chance without written consent of Celebrate H.A.R.V.E.S.T. and/or Maris Farms.
